Do you think software development has reached its peak? I can't think of anything else novel to develop that hasn't been already developed?


Change in hardware or something involving hardware is the only route to innovation I am thinking

    You sound like people around 1900 - saying the same thing. I will let someone smarter than me talk:

    "We don't know a millionth of one percent about anything."

    That you "can't think of anything else" isn't about the future of software development. It's about your level of imagination and creativity.

    Nowhere near. We have only scratched the surface.
